      My relatives are driving me insane. a few are in town.

       

      OMG........Lebron did another first round sweep! Just like last year!

       

      Steve Kerr is pretty cool. I like him, sadly his team is a bunch of egg heads but he is cool. And he suffers a lot with mysterious health things sadly.

       

      Be back later tonight probably, not sure but yeah........:headspin:

      Does LeBron even take the regular season serious anymore? lmao He waits till the playoffs to awaken. 

       

      The Warriors didn't look that great last night. They could've lost had it not been for that run they had. Happy though for Durant he can sit out while his star-studded team he's riding the coat tails of can win without him.

      I am almost starting to hate him the most now over anyone else on the Warriors. He literally IS just riding their coat tails. There was too much pressure on him in OKC.......and he rarely ever delivered.

       

      But, he has really been milking this stupid leg injury crap at times too even though it's been months. I mean even last year in the first round of the playoffs Curry got hurt but didn't even miss much time and he is frail as hell compared to Durant.

       

      Screw Durant. I hope he hides under his covers from Lebron.

      He always had great muscles on his arms and in great shape. Never did he have to bulk up and gain additional weight or anything like that.

      Oh they ARE screwed in Boston. I am kinda lost though to how a team with Wade/Butler/Rondo is only the 8th seed?

       

       

       

      I dug out this old December article from 538 to show you. They penned it down that the Bulls beat the best teams and lose to the worst ones. 

       

      https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/why-the-bulls-beat-the-best-teams-and-then-lose-to-the-worst-ones/

       

      Quote

      The Bulls’ puzzling, two-faced play stands out most when it happens in consecutive games, as it did earlier this month. The club beat the defending-champion Cavaliers the night before getting drilled by the Dallas Mavericks, who, along with the Wolves and Sixers, have the worst record in the NBA.
       

      The showing wasn’t out of the ordinary. During the past five full seasons and what’s been played so far this year,1 the Bulls have had nine instances — more than any other club2 — in which they knocked off a team with a pre-game winning percentage of at least .600, only to then lose to an opponent with a .400 winning percentage or worse the next game, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The Bulls narrowly escaped laying another egg by holding on to beat a lowly Miami unit this weekend after an impressive win over San Antonio.

       

      This makes Chicago sound like the Chiefs....A team who often can beat up on great teams, but then get beat down by garbage like when K.C. lost to freaking Tampa Bay this past year, but swept the Raiders and also beat down Atlanta.

      I think I heard the Bulls had issues gelling......due to some egos on the team and alpha males in general, it took a while and there was some weekly drama too.

      In NBA height thats like considered midget at 5'9. IT is an elite scorer at times but he can have huge issues defending all the dudes over 6 feet tall. IT and Rondo have been going at it a lot too in this series and Rondo is actually 6'1 believe it or not. 

       

      Watching these games actually makes me remember the old days when Rondo was so good with the Celtics. The way he can dictate the game on the court, pass the ball and get all those assists. Rondo looks more muscular now too then his old days in Boston.

       

      Believe it or not, Lonzo Ball is the same height as Kobe Bryant. He is just super skinny. But, I think you could take Lonzo and add weight on him and make him into an elite player......."maybe."

      Oh yeah, you're right about height in the NBA. I think Allen Iverson was 5"9 or close to that, he was always known as being the "littlest guy in the league".

       

      Teams that run their entire offense through a little guy tend to be doomed to fail. I don't watch the Celtics as closely as you do, but I know Allen Iverson had this exact same problem with the Sixers. They relied so heavily on him to do every single thing on the court, and it doomed them since he never had a real big man to help out. From what I've seen, the Celtics seem to think IT can do it all on his own. I think they messed up during free agency by not getting him a legitimate playmaker to help out, Paul George would've totally helped.

      Rondo is playing in this series like the old Rondo from the past. 

       

      I've never been big on Rondo cause of his ego, but one of my favorite memories was seeing him in 2012 take Miami to 7 games. That Celtics team was practically exhausted and broken down, and Rondo played his butt off in that series. That was the series with the very questionable calls I think in Game 2 where Wade was all over Pierce and got fouled and shot free throws after putting his hands on him. Omg, Miami one game shot over 50 free throws, it was nuts.

      Let's pray he has Kobe's work ethic or at least part of it. From watching how dedicated Kobe was even in his final season, I don't think we'll ever see someone that hardcore again. If Kobe Bryant were a guitar player, he would be one of those super hardcore type players, who practice religiously for 4-7 hours a day and are never late for band practice, and get REALLY mad when they have to deal with mediocre and lazy musicians that suck. lmao

       

      Most Lakers fans want Ball cause of his passing, they feel would be a fit in the offense Luke wants to run. I think I sent you a clip some time back where the Lakers passed the ball 8 times in a span of 15 seconds before taking a shot.

      Clippers lose by 2, they are in full playoff form early. I feel bad for Doc Rivers since the Clippers tied the game with 13 seconds and then Utah got a shot to go in at the buzzer. Doc looked heartbroken.

       

      Clippers are just so damn doomed.

       

      I have heard rumors too that Blake Griffin is interested in teams like the Celtics now.

       

      Should be the New Orleans Jazz though.

      Ugh this is depressing. Chicago shot lights out in game 1, Isaiah Thomas is a basket case and looks like he has not slept (understandable) and well......it's game 2 or else our Boston dream is likely going to end sooner then we had hoped.

       

      Game 2 is now HUGE.

       

      Nice moment at the end when I saw D Wade talking to Isaiah kindly and asking how he was doing.

       

      If you did not see the Warriors, they struggled with Portland until the 4th quarter and Portland even had a lead once. Anyone who says the Warriors can't be beaten is stupid, they can be beaten......the D is still very iffy.
